So it’s been a tough decision with four main trail areas at Bass lake. It’s been two years and I’m confident picking the spring cove trail as my favorite. Long fast and flow. There’s long fast flowy parts with a about 10 root or rock garden (like the one pictured)that you can rally at speed. There’s five hair pin switch backs all with a unique character. The bottom opens up and us forestry let us put in 6 “water bars” to prevent erosion. Don’t call them jumps but you can get some nice air time. I hiked the rocky part with two switchbacks 6 times doing suspension tuning. Took the opportunity to set up the cam. On the final run from the top I was so exhausted that I blew right through one of the switchbacks that I had just practiced 5 times. Lol Jumped in the lake to wrap up the ride. Praise baby jesus hallelujah for school back in session. This will be happening everFriday.
The view
Roost out of the rock garden
Spring cove trail
They re water bars not jumps
As far as US forestry is concerned these are water bars not jumps.
Perfect way to end a ride

Pretty epic trails and like 4 really good different areas. Definitely wait until spring or fall. It was like 85 up there today. I’m getting pretty acclimated to the heat but it’s something to avoid if coming from a cooler climate.
